Fénix Family

Friends and familyAlmost every day girls and young women come to ask for advice and support, sometimes for help in crises or just for friendship and company - to be part of the Fénix family.

They may have difficulties in their homes, or have no family or need information on birth control, and they find their way to Fénix because someone else told them about us.

We are discovering a huge unmet need: vulnerable young women with no support networks and for whom there are no counselling services.

Often they want guidance on education and sometimes Fénix students can provide mentoring and tutoring.

We hope some may eventually become full Fénix members, enter higher education and become the caring professionals who in their turn will then support other at risk girls.
